Adele’s Music Video ‘Hello’ Is Directed by Xavier Dolan, First to Be Shot on Imax Cameras

Adele’s “Hello” is not only the Grammy winner’s first single in three years, but the first ever music video shot on Imax cameras.

Imax’s official Twitter account announced the milestone on Friday morning.

The six-minute vid off of Adele’s upcoming, highly anticipated “make-up record” “25” was directed by Xavier Dolan and costars “The Wire’s” Tristan Wilds, who plays her ex-boyfriend in flashbacks.

The Quebecois filmmaker shot the video in the Montreal countryside, filming almost every scene from the British songstress’ perspective.

Dolan starred in “Tom at the Farm,” which recently hit theaters after premiering at the Venice Film Festival two years ago. He played a man returning to Montreal to attend his ex-boyfriend’s funeral in the film, which was also shot in rural Canada. Dolan directed the 2014 movie “Mommy,” starring Anne Dorval, which won the jury prize at the Cannes Film Festival. His latest film, “It’s Only the End of the World,” featuring Lea Seydoux, Marion Cotillard and Vincent Cassel, is expected to premiere next year.

“25” is currently available for pre-order and will be released on Nov. 20.
